Kizzle (Kyle) stopped by Monday and we mounted my spare set of Dunlop RSIII and front brake pads. He ordered replacements, I'll post when I have another set available.
There isn't a Motorrad dealer listed on BMW website nor Garmin for Catlett, VA area. However, if you're in the area (surrounding states), I would take
up on his service invites. He's as thorough as great mechanics came and built himself a professional shop to compliment him. Any and everything that can be done on a vehicle probably has taken place in his shop with ease given the tools on hand.
I had a choice to track home (800 miles) miles and searched for a dealership that may have the brand of choice, also, a network who feels comfortable installing a tire on an aftermarket wheel or head to Duane's 400+ miles from my current location. Duane not only installed new tires, but a pair of brake pads was also on hand to replace my worn pads. I'm not a betting man, but if I needed, a K1600 motor or transmission, I would bet my savings he would pull one out. Before my trip, I completed the 30K service at 27500, along with new tires, in hopes to get 7500-8000, the previous set had 2700 miles on them. Oil change at 32600. The rear tire was higher than 50% worn; the dealer didn't feel comfortable working on aftermarket wheel. Also, I chose not to cross Metzler with Dunlop.
Duane welcome me on Sunday, and same would have gone for Labor Day Monday. He requested my ETA to assure he would be in the area. After we confirmed Sunday and approximate time I received a text "plan on staying with us"; before I had an opportunity to reserve overnight accommodations. Thanks to Duane and family for the hospitality.
Riders Domain messed up on delivery address. I placed the tire order Saturday night. Tuesday evening while traveling home I received an e-mail confirmation, tires were ship to North Carolina. I just got off the phone with RD to correct delivery location. Their hours are 6AM-6PM Pacific. I'm expecting a call with new updates. Brake pads ordered before dinner on Sunday night. They should arrive today.
Many thanks, Duane!!!
